Spotlight on...research skills

If your course involves doing more detailed research projects, such as a dissertation, you will need to learn about and follow academic research methods. SAGE Research Methods is an excellent resource. It contains a diverse toolkit of reference sources, textbooks, videos and interactive learning tools to help you understand research methods, get you started and keep you on track throughout your project.

Finding books on the library shelves

A 'shelfmark' or 'call number' is a number that tells you where a book an be found in the library. Our main lending collection is on Level 2. Each row of shelves has a poster on the end that tells you what shelfmarks can be found there.

You can use the table on this page to see the general areas that main topics in your subject are shelved. Sometimes, casually browsing the shelves can turn up some great resources!

A shelfmark with two or three letters preceding it means that the book is not shelved in the main collection.

  • SE means it will be in our School Experience Collection on Level 0
  • LH means it will be in the Local History Collection on Level 2
  • REF or JHN is for the Reference or John Henry Birmingham Newman Collections on Level 1. You cannot borrow books from these collections: they can only be used in the Library.
